The (Marxist-Socialist) People Speak
Hollywood & Howard Zinn’s Marxist education project
by Michelle Malkin | Creators Syndicate | Copyright 2009
The two most important questions for society, according to the Greek philosopher Plato, are these: What will we teach our children? And who will teach them? Left-wing celebrities have teamed up with one of America’s most radical historians to take control of the classroom in the name of “social justice.” Parents, beware: This Hollywood-backed Marxist education project may be coming to a school near you.
On Sunday, December 13, the History Channel will air “The People Speak” – a documentary based on Marxist academic Howard Zinn’s capitalism-bashing, America-dissing, grievance-mongering history textbook, “A People’s History of the United States.” The film was co-produced/written/bankrolled by Zinn’s Boston neighbor and mentee Matt Damon. An all-star cast of Bush-bashing liberals including Danny Glover, Josh Brolin, Bruce Springsteen, Marisa Tomei, and Eddie Vedder, will appear. Zinn’s work is a self-proclaimed “biased account” of American history that rails against white oppressors, the free market, and the military.
As you watch the trailer, substitute Tea Party crowds and anti-Obama crowds for the crowds in the film. The left thinks it has a monopoly on what the "people" think. And most of it is manipulated by the media. Words? Just words? Crowds? What crowds? I guess it all boils down to this . . . Are we selling our freedom for security . . . a security that's a lie.
